The Abortion Postabortion Care Consortium is pleased to share with you this translated version of a webinar that took place in March of this year. Putting the Power in Women's Hands:Programmatic Learnings Related to Abortion Self Use, was a webinar originally presented in Spanish on experiences and lessons from the Latin American region and beyond on ways to support women in accessing medical abortion outside of a traditional health facility setting. Gynuity Health Projects shared on their telemedicine project TeleAborto in Mexico, including first-hand experience from a participating provider. Ipas Bolivia shared on experiences partnering with community health workers to support women on safe pathways to abortion care. Lastly, Marie Stopes International discussed their recent studies around how women can be supported to safely self-administer, and their soon-to-be-launched global Abortion Quality Index for measuring and sustaining medical abortion quality outside of facility settings.
